Bosnian prosecutors said on Friday they would investigate a lawyer at the heart of a failed legal appeal to the U.N.'s top court to revise a ruling clearing Serbia of genocide.

On Thursday, the International Court of Justice (ICJ) rejected a request to revise its 2007 exoneration of Serbia of direct responsibility for killings, rapes and "ethnic cleansing" by Bosnian Serb forces it armed during the war.

The court said it could not adjudicate because no competent body "on behalf of Bosnia as a state" had requested the revision.
